The White House says President Donald Trump supports the House effort to avert a government shutdown and fund a popular children's health insurance program for six years.

"The President supports the continuing resolution introduced in the House," White House spokesman Raj Shah says in a statement. "Congress needs to do its job and provide full funding of our troops and military with a two-year budget caps deal. However, as the deal is negotiated, the President wants to ensure our military and national security are funded. He will not let it be held hostage by Democrats."

Trump cast his support for the measure into doubt earlier Thursday with a tweet that criticized the length of the CHIP reauthorization. "CHIP should be part of a long term solution, not a 30 Day, or short term, extension!" Trump tweeted.
